Our institution plans to purchase multispectral scanners for retro-digitizing historical documents. To ensure that the acquired files can be archived/preserved for the long term, we have so far relied on (baseline) TIFF.
My question would be, can and is TIFF also used for multispectral images, and how exactly are they mapped in TIFF according to specifications (which tags, and so on)?
I found some hints at GeoTIFF, see http://docs.opengeospatial.org/is/19-008r4/19-008r4.html#_band and http://docs.opengeospatial.org/is/19-008r4/19-008r4.html#_imagery.
But since GeoTIFF is mainly used for georeferenced image data, it doesn't seem to me to be the appropriate one.
